Great songwriter indeed! I search high and low for gorgeous C21st melodies such as those on Honest Hour. The whole album is very fine, my favourite song being the title track. There's some lovely guitar - sounds like a pedal steel.

A couple of other great recent songs I'm never tired of sharing:

Audra Mae: River

Alexander Ebert: Let's Win

I can't tell ya WillCo how much I love this album. It is so, so good. "Speculator" reaches a place few songs do for me.

He drops a little Emily Dickinson in Honest Hour (yet another great tune) > "She kindly stopped for me and she stole my breath".

Was Audra Mae vid shot in Austin?

The Alexander Ebert link did not work.

Cheers.
